My mom is worried becuz i usually just get like 3 hours of sleep a day... I even trie to make a habit for sleep but it doesnt work.
Avatar n tn m waking up every hr almost on the hr every night. Also bad dreams when I am sleep. Any and all suggestion on how to sleep better or at all would be greatly appreciated. Please help, thanks.
Avatar f tn i think its safe but it would be a bad habit to start so early in pregnancy. sleeping only get harder to come by and if you start using it and it works its going to be something you consistently use which at that point might not be the best not only for baby but for you as well. or you use it now and built up a tolerance for it and it take more and more to be effective or stops working at some point you might get frustrated.
Avatar n tn But then the cold/flu symptoms came back a couple days after the sore throat stopped. I went back to the doctor and they said it was allergies and put me back on Singulair. After a few days, those went away, but then my throat started hurting even worse than before. So, for a third time I went to the doctor and got tested for mono and strep A. I tested positive for mono, but negative for strep A. I then took two weeks off from work and school to sleep and be a couch potato.
Avatar n tn anti-histamines are most commonly used for allergies such as benadryl, but is often found in OTC sleep aids, and some older anti-histamines have anxiolytic effects, and many other uses. Taking nyquil every so often will help you get to sleep and stay a sleep due to a cold or irritation, but its not relally useful for insomnia. theres where more prescription sleepaids come into the mix, but enough rambling, your body will still burn calories while you sleep if you take nyquil...
4244557 tn?1371701336 Benadryl is classified as safe for baby. I took it to help me sleep with my last baby because I had the worst insomnia and my OB told me to take a Benadryl on the nights I had insomnia.
509482 tn?1254317659 Hi, my name is Priscilla and I am 10 weeks pregnant, my allergies are really bad and I called my doctor and he said it was ok for me to take Benadryl, I took only one capsule (25mg) but i am really scared, what if i loose the baby?? or the baby doesnt develop the way it was supposed to because i took the medication??? if somebody else had the same experience please let me know!!
Avatar n tn I started suffering from an insomnia about a year ago and since then it is getting worse. Im taking antidepressant Avanza and antipsychotic Seroquell. They both should improve my sleep but they dont. I tried Melatonin, benzos, you name it. Nothing helps. I sleep between 2 and 3 hours a night. It got so bad that now Im extremely dizzy during the day and I dont function. I tried doing yoga, nothing really helps. Couple of days ago, I got so dizzy that I fainted and just fell on the floor.
Avatar n tn I have hormonal headaches and breast tenderness. Recent symptoms - brain fog during my period, insomnia and itchiness (from the inside, out). An antihistamine tablet will work for a day or two but then the itching returns. It is not due to dry skin or a food allergy. I have no hot flashes or vaginal dryness though I have had an occasional hot flash when under stress or excess sweating but not on a regular basis.
365714 tn?1292199108 I'm 24 and within the normal bodyweight for my hight though I would like to lose about 10lbs and still remain healthy. I did have my blood sugar checked a while ago and nothing came out abnormal. I wonder if it could be brought on as a side effect of wellbutrin? If not that, we also had the heat turned up for the weather which may have made it far worse. I seem to suffer this more in the winter. But it shouldn't be that dry in the room.
Avatar m tn The B Vitamin Complex and Magnesium are important for handling stress. Magnesium in particular helps people sleep more deeply and continuously. Fatigue and insomnia are connected with such deficiencies. You may also find the Magnesium, and possibly Potassium, might help the blood pressure, phobia, and allergies.
Avatar f tn I take my zoloft and ativan in morning as it me jittery and causes insomnia. I have seasonal allergies and was wondering the best OTC antihistamine would work better. Allegra, Zyrtec or loratadine. I was on 12.5 zoloft for 2 weeks and tapering up to 25 mg (split another 12.5 in half so 3/4 a pill then one whole 25 mg. I have to do this slowly as I am super sensitive to meds. Thanks for any help. Plus I eventually need to taper down my ativan when I level on the zoloft.
Avatar f tn Yes, I'm using it right now to see if I have allergies. Just can't take a lot in a short period of time. I try and do it every other day to every two days.
Avatar f tn I have gone to a reputable allergist, who I trust more than my other doctors, and he cleared me for any and all allergies including an in depth test for celiac (gluten allergy). It's definitely not allergies, so again most likely it's my thyroid antibodies. I am curious to read further answers here. The only testing that is left for me is another thyroid scan, lymph node (mammogram and FNA), and in depth Lyme tests.
Avatar f tn Ok awesome cause i have allergies that are kicking my butt.
Avatar f tn This whole thing began in mid-May with a feeling like there was a lump in my throat. I went to an ENT and he used a scope and saw nothing. I still had the feeling like there was something stuck in my throat and this was accompanied by gagging, dry heaving and vomitting up anything that I ate. I was also constantly spitting this mucus-y, clear saliva out of my mouth. I went to the ER one day because I threw up and felt like I could not breathe well.
Avatar f tn For constipation, I take colace twice per day, and drink a glass of prune juice every day and that takes care of it. Insomnia ***** too. You can try unisom, which is fine during pregnancy. In fact , coupled with vit D, can really help with nausea. Congrats on your pregnancy! All these all temporary and lead to a baby! Sounds like you are right on track!
Avatar f tn I am a mother of a 26 year daughter who recently pulled the plug on taking a daily dose of Singulair (it was generic) after over a year. It was used as a maintenance treatment for chronic allergies and sinus infections. Seemed to work ok, however in the 6 months there had been a couple times she rushed herself to the doctor for symptoms that no one even thought to suspect the allergy medication. First there was numbing and tingling in her arms.
Avatar n tn Hello, Dark circles under the eyes are temporary and caused due to insomnia, smoking, a family history of dark circles, deficiency of vit K in diet, allergies like sinusitis and eczema, and adrenal gland disorders. Take rest adequately and eat healthy nutritious food containing lots of green vegetables. Try to avoid caffeine, because it promotes water retention and leads to the dryness of the eye.
Avatar n tn The other common side effects of Ambien are headache, dizziness, mental clouding, daytime drowsiness and allergies. Hence, it is advised you visit your doctor if you are experiencing any such side effects. The drug is considered safe for a period of two to maximum six weeks for the treatment of insomnia. If taken for a longer duration, one may develop dependence on ambien. You should discuss with your doctor about the risks of taking ambient for 2 weeks or longer.
5186053 tn?1364857018 I am a 36 year old female with Asperger's. That's the one thing I don't have questions on. My other symptoms are: same headache since birth, severe insomnia, whole body muscle weakness, chronic pain (neck, shoulders, lower back), sensitivity to cold, "unspecified movement or tick disorder," fatigue, severe pain in lower part of legs when walking up inclines, severe allergies/sinus issues, and cold hands and feet (just to name a few of them).
Avatar n tn Also have fatigue, nightsweats, insomnia and nausea. Family doctor ran blood tests. Results show creatinine level high, protein low and eosinophils percent high. More lab work, peripheral smear, where it looks at the blood cell further shows leukocytosis and Neutrophillia. Chest X-ray was normal. I had gastric sleeve surgery in 2015. Not sure if any of it could be related. He thinks I should go to infectious disease to see if there’s an underlying infection somewhere.
